upcoming events

On the 20th September we are opening our doors in Barnsley to invite you to join us for our Making Tax Digital event, in partnership with Xero accounting software.

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is an HMRC initiative designed to make sure the UK tax system is effective, efficient and easier for taxpayers. It sets out a vision for the 'end of the tax return' and a 'transformed tax system' by 2020. So, it should be important to everybody!

Making Tax Digital for business (MTDfb) begins on 1 April 2019 with MTD for VAT. From that date, VAT-registered businesses above the threshold of £85k will have to keep digital records and submit VAT returns using compatible software. HMRC lists Xero as software that will be compatible with MTD for VAT.

Other components of Making Tax Digital, such as income tax and corporation tax, have been placed on hold until April 2020 at the earliest.

The event:

  • What is MTD and how does it affect you?
  • What can you do to be ready for the deadline?
  • Do GBAC Ltd have an in-house solution?
  • What is cloud accounting and Xero and is it right for my business?

Find out the answers to these and much more.

There will also be an opportunity to network with like-minded businesses, and food and drink will be provided.

So whether you are already a client, or you're not getting this information from your current accountants, come and join us!
